An Emmy Award, or simply Emmy, is an American award that recognizes excellence in the television industry, and is the equivalent of an Academy Award (for film), the Tony Award (for theater), and the Grammy Award (for music).

Because Emmys are given in various sectors of the American television industry, they are presented in different annual ceremonies held throughout the year. The two events that receive the most media coverage are the Primetime Emmy Awards and the Daytime Emmy Awards, which recognize outstanding work in American primetime and daytime entertainment programming, respectively.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost, aired Monday on NBC.

Thandie Newton gave a moving acceptance speech after being announced as the winner for Outstanding Supporting Actress at this year’s Emmy Awards.

The Westworld star prompted laughter from the audience at the Hollywood ceremony when she began with “I don’t even believe in God but I’m going to thank her tonight”.

She began:

I don’t even believe in God but I’m going to thank her tonight.

I am so blessed. I am so f***ing blessed…

To work with the people that I have gotten to work with. The cast and crew of – I can’t believe I’m here – the cast and crew of Westworld, I love you all so much.

She continued:

My family, my daughter Ripley turns 18 today and I get to guide you and love you and protect you, which is my north star, I love you so much baby.

Thank you, thank you for this.

That got a nice round of applause from the audience ― and in some places on Twitter, too.
